1. Linnet Ridgeway:
Wealthy and good-looking. She is the daughter of Melhuish Ridgeway and Anna Hartz. She inherits from her grandfather, Leopold Hartz, an immense fortune. She was twenty. She had blond hair.
She had something too of the assurance of a famous actress. Sje was used to being looked at, to being admired, to being the center of the stage wherever she went.
And she liked Simon Doyle. And it turned out that she eventually got married with Simon. (What happened?!)
2. Hon. Joanna Southwood:
A tall thin young woman of twenty-seven, with a long clever face and freakishly plucked eyebrows.
3. Jacqueline de Bellefort:
Linnet’s oldest friend. Her father was a French Count and her mother was American—a Southerner. The father went off with some woman, and her mother lost all her money in the Wall Street crash. And she was left absolutely broke.
She had dark curly hair and enormous eyes.
4. Lord Charles Windlesham:
The potential candidate husband of Linnet. Actually, he did love Linnet.
5. Simon Doyle
Jacqueline’s fiancé, according to Jackie, who was big and square and incredibly simple and boyish and utterly adorable.
He was a tall, broad-shouldered young man, with very dark blue eyes, crisply curling brown hair, a square chin, and a boyish, appealing, simple smile.
M. Gaston Blondin, the proprietor of that modish little restaurant Chez Ma Tante.
6. Tim Allerton:
He was a tall, thin young man, with dark hair and rather narrow chest. His mouth had a very sweet expression: His eyes were sad and his chin was indecisive. He had long delicate hands.
He was Joanna’s cousin, but he didn’t really like her.
7. Mrs. Allerton:
She was a good-looking, white-haired woman of fifty.
8. Cornelia Robson:
She was a big clumsy looking girl with brown doglike eyes.
9. Miss Van Schuyler (Marie):
She was Cornelia’s cousin I think and she brought Cornelia to Europe or Egypt. She was rich.
10. Mr. Andrew Pennington and Mr. Rockford:
They were partners. Both of them were tall, spare, with greying hair and clean-shaven, clever faces. And Mr. Andrew was Linnet’s uncle.
11. William Carmichael and Jim:
William was Jim’s uncle. He sent Jim to meet with Linnet in Egypt. And the reason was unknown.
12. Rosalie Otterbourne and her mother:
Rosalie was quite good-looking, but she was both sulky and bad-tempered. Mrs. Otterbourne was a novelist.
